Great Company
In-Flight Service Director (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 3, 2014
Great hours and overtime, you can manage your own schedule. Fly to great destinations and meet a variety of skilled and pleasent co-workers and passengers. Flying in the summer is better for perdiem, with many layovers. Hardest part is staying out of company drama and you feel like your always walking on egg shells. Make sure you don't book yourself – more... on too much as your health and mental stress can get overwhelming fast!! – less

Work to Rule
Station Attendant (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCDecember 2, 2014
Pros: pain, agony
Cons: its a rip off.
Air Canada Is a Union Based company, if you don't have thick skin it is definitely not for you. The pay structure is completely wrong. you will have people doing the exact same work beside each other and one will be getting payed 45 an Hr and the other 10 an Hr, they cannot keep the part time employees because it is to dangerous, I saw many part time – more... people hurt and the workers compensation claims are out of this world. 30 to 40 people a day call in sick. So if you want help cause someone called in sick, forget it you can just work your but off. Benefits are like a con game they will dangle them in front of you to entice you to sign on, but you will never get to use them as you have to phone India as that is where the call center is if you want to use them, Take a number get in line.

Yes I think you get the Message, hopefully. – less

Little room for advancement

The job was interesting, but the office environment was micro-managed. Very little room for advancement. However, shift trading made for great schedule flexibility, and the travel allowances were fair.

I began there just before the Ice Storm of 99. Pilot's Strike ... Possible bankruptcy, Taking on another Airline ... change of CEO etc ... and I still loved my job from the first call to the last ... due to circumstances beyond my control I had to leave, but would go back in a heartbeat. I miss my co-workers, the customers and overall atmosphere.

I enjoyed the work, and my co-workers. I learnt that the world is a very small place, and enjoyed meeting people from around the world. I felt that I learnt something new every day.

mis-managed
Lead Station Attendant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 15, 2014
This is a job that is based solely on how long you have been there...Management is completely out to lunch (half of them are not even trained for the job they are trying to manage)..

Flight benefits? Don't even try to fly in the summer or during the holiday peak period unless you have a ton of seniority..Union and management do not get along, don't – more... even know why there is a union, they really don't help with anything.

Pay is low for the work, and the pension is on the brink of collapse.. – less
